The importance of labor union women taking action on attacks against working people will be the theme of the 3rd Annual Women’s History Brunch hosted by the St. Louis chapter of the Coalition of Labor Union Women (CLUW) on Saturday, March 24.

The event, which coincides with Women’s History Month, will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the CWA Local 6300 Union Hall at 2258 Grissom Drive in Maryland Heights. Doors will open at 10:30 a.m. Tickets for the brunch are $25 each or $175 for a table of eight.

With the onslaught of recent attacks on working people in Missouri, now is the time for union women to become politically active and register to vote, get friends and family registered to vote, vote, run for office and/or support candidates who will stand with working families.

Speakers addressing those topics and more will include: Brenda Davis, a SEIU Healthcare steward at Christian Care Home in Ferguson where workers have been on strike since Dec. 1; Natashia Pickens, president of CWA Local 6355; and Missouri Representative Karla May (D-St. Louis).
